Every episode we blast anyone who gets in our way. We bring critical thinking, skepticism, and irreverence to any topic that makes the news, makes it big, or makes us mad. It’s skeptical, it’s political and there is no welcome mat.

About the Hosts

CecilProfile Photo


Cecil is a 40-something de-converted Christian, Ex- Republican, one-time Woo-believer and former conspiracy theorist. He’s all better now. He lives with his wife in Chicago. He has two associates’ degrees in culinary and patisserie arts, a BA degree in philosophy, and a Masters in New Media. He makes a living as a new media professional. None of these things qualify him as an authority on anything. He can however, prepare a meal that will make you have a fit of existential anxiety then he’ll give you advice on the best way to tweet about it. He’s never rode in a submarine.

TomProfile Photo


Tom is a great lover of sandwiches and the meats and cheeses within them. He has a degree in English Literature, which, along with three bucks and a kind word, might be enough for a cup of coffee. A husband, father, half-hearted idealist, and sometimes poet, Tom’s ire is raised before he is every morning. Tom earns his keep staring numbly downward while listening to people complain about real estate. He is also afraid of birds.
